Thread.CurrentUICulture Property

Gets or sets the current culture used by the Resource Manager to look up culture-specific resources at run time.

Namespace: System.Threading
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public CultureInfo CurrentUICulture { get; set; }
/** @property */
public CultureInfo get_CurrentUICulture ()

/** @property */
public void set_CurrentUICulture (CultureInfo value)

public function get CurrentUICulture () : CultureInfo

public function set CurrentUICulture (value : CultureInfo)

Not applicable.

Property Value

A CultureInfo representing the current culture.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

The property is set to a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

ArgumentException

The property is set to a culture name that cannot be used to locate a resource file. Resource filenames must include only letters, numbers, hyphens or underscores.

The CultureInfo returned by this property can be a neutral culture. Neutral cultures should not be used with formatting methods such as String.Format, DateTime.ToString, and Convert.ToString. Use the System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CreateSpecificCulture(System.String) method to get a specific culture, or use the CurrentCulture property. For more information, see Formatting for Different Cultures.

NoteNote:

The System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CreateSpecificCulture(System.String) method throws ArgumentException for the neutral cultures "zh-Hant" ("zh-CHT") and "zh-Hans" ("zh-CHS").

The following code example shows the threading statement that allows the user interface of a Windows Forms to display in the culture that is set in Control Panel. Additional code is needed.

// Compile with option /t:winexe.

using System;
using System.Threading;
using System.Windows.Forms;

class UICulture : Form
{
    public UICulture()
    {
        // Set the user interface to display in the
        // same culture as that set in Control Panel.
        Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = 
            Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture;

        // Add additional code.
    }

    [STAThreadAttribute]
    static void Main()
    {
        Application.Run(new UICulture());
    }
}

// Compile with option /t:winexe.
import System.*;
import System.Threading.*;
import System.Threading.Thread;
import System.Windows.Forms.*;

class UICulture extends Form
{
    public UICulture()
    {
        // Set the user interface to display in the
        // same culture as that set in Control Panel.
        Thread.get_CurrentThread().set_CurrentUICulture(
            Thread.get_CurrentThread().get_CurrentCulture());
        // Add additional code.
    } //UICulture


    /** @attribute STAThreadAttribute()
     */
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        Application.Run(new UICulture());
    } //main
} //UICulture
